Got to cover my ninth state championship since moving here today. And the second time seeing a Monett team bring home a title. Few things I enjoy more than capturing post-championship moments. This was Monett softball's first state title and they became the first program in Missouri high school history to win a state title with 10+ losses. The "22" on their wrists is something this team started in district play when they got win No. 16. They wrote it on themselves every day for nearly 3 weeks. It represented the win total needed for a state title, which they got today with a 4-1 win over Notre Dame.
